HEAT! Ohhh, so close...
« on: July 17, 2023, 08:26:39 PM »
My station's all time high (since Apr 3 2007) is 108.3 in June 2013. Today's high? 107.8! SO CLOSE! And yet, still only my 5th highest  :roll:

T-clouds began to move when it hit that temp & slowly brought it down to a cool 103...

So far, 24 days 100+ with 14 in a row (current) and 3 days since the start of 'HOT!' that only saw 99.5, 99.8, 99.9 to break up this record run. Most days in a row prior was 12 in 2020.

Some would say it's 27 in a row but numbers be numbers &, like the man said: "Ninety-nine and a half justa won't do - got to be a hundred".  \:D/

Technically, 99.5 is rounded up, so yes, it's 100.

What brings down a lot of the hyped up numbers and what some are trying to align with certain agendas, is simply "so it has been hotter?"

MY station was 115.2F yesterday it was a record for that day. The all time record for Las Vegas is 117.0F. We will be in the one teens all week. The humidity was 6% very dry.

Those temperatures must be miserable to be in. When it got to 120F in 2021 here in the Columbia Basin, no one here was having fun at all.

Yeah, but that 117 is/was at McCarran. When I lived out by Fort Apache & Twain, I ran in the 120s in 2005. It was one reason why I moved to the cooler climes of the Chihuahua Desert... :lol:

7 of 10 of my new daily station high temp records have been since July 5th - still hoping to pop that all-time high before this thing is thru.

BTW - how's the lake looking nowadays?

I came across these links that I thought might be of interest to you (if you haven't already seen them). Nice historic reference:
